This day is to thank all nurses, their dedication and work especially, Nurses are indispensable in safeguarding public health. Nurses play an essential role in our medical institutions such as giving safety or help in the recovery of patients etc. No doubt when some patient is in need of care then nurses work tirelessly to identify and protect the needs of the individual.
